Building on the achievements of 2015's intense ratman-eradicating journey Warhammer: End Times — Vermintide — itself received as a commendable riff on the 10-year-old genre-defining title Left 4 Dead"and a 2009 sequel — Vermintide 2 released on March 8.

A score of good reviews praise the young franchise's second entry with its expanded range of abilities, environments, enemies and loot hauls.

While Vermintide 2 was first on PC, with console editions to follow for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Final Fantasy XV was an example of the inverse, where a collected Windows Edition arrived over a year after its console forebear.

Nevertheless it has been received with enthusiasm both critically and commercially too, as evidenced by placings not far behind the successor of "Vermintide" on the Steam and Humble charts.

By Sunday, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds had been top of Steam's revenue-based bestseller chart for 50 weeks in a row.
